Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 132-Under The Sea

Hey everyone, and Happy Saturday(again, lol)!! It is time for this week's Kraftin' Kimmie challenge, and today's challenge goes with the new Krafty Klubhouse set, Sea Jewels, PERFECTLY! It's called Under the Sea....and well, that pretty much says it all,lol.

I stamped my mermaid from the Sea Jewels set on X-Press It Blending Card, and then colored her with my Copics. She was layered with Robin's Egg(Bazzill), Sour Apple(MFT) and Fossil(MFT) card stock. I used some paper from the MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky paper pad for my background, and layered it with Fossil card stock. The MFT Wave Border Die-namics was used to cut out my Fossil wave strip at the top....which I put upside down to make it look like the water was meeting the sand...did it work? LOL! For my "seaweed", I used the Leafy Flourish Die-namics, and I added several  "starfish" using the MFT Stars Stax Die-namics. To finish, I used some Caribbean Twine, and SU Oval Punches for my sentiment. 

Well, that is it for me for today! Be sure to head to the Kraftin' Kimmie Blog to see what the other girls have come up with for this week's challenge! I hope to see you playing along!!

iSpy a Crazy Challenge

Hey everyone, and happy Saturday! It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge, and today's challenge is to make a card using circles. I decided to combine it with this week's I Spy Sketch Challenge, as well. 

If you decide to play along with us at Crazy 4 Challenges, all you have to do is create a card/project, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C140. Don't forget to come back here and link it on InLinkz so that everyone else can see it too.

If you decide to play along with us at the iSpy Sketch Blog, be sure to link your card there, as well!!

For my card tonight, I used the SUPER adorable Cute As A Button set from There She Goes. I stamped my image four times...once on Sweet Tooth card stock for the base, then on two different pieces of paper from the MME Indie Chic Ginger pad, and then on X-Press It blending card. I paper pieced the pin cushion using my papers, and colored the button on the one stamped on X-Press It blending card-which was cut out separately. My image was cut out with the MFT Circle Stax Die-namics, and then layered with the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics in Going Gray. For my other card stock colors, I used Bazzill Gold Coin and SU Tangerine Tango. Grey Mist seam binding is the ribbon I used, and my brads are from Michael's.

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out my teammates at both the Crazy 4 Challenges and iSpy blogs! They are listed in my sidebar!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
